The upcoming documentry ,is a full detailed image explanation of the classical RAINBOW song STARGAZER,it includes also and explains the relation of this song with the album title RAINBOW RISING and album artwork as well ,proving how the 3 are related to each other and if u dont belive ,just ask ur self why is lyrics included inside the original RAINBOW RISING (LP) belongs and includes only STARGAZER on its own ?
Starting with the image of the song.......well the scene goes way way back .....thousands of years from now .....the scene goes specifically to the ancient egyptian pharos days ,first we see the evil wicked,wizard in his kingdom,thinking and planning of something evil,thinking of way to make him more powerful ....inorder to take over the world...yes thats his dream .....takeover the world...but how ? he asks himself?.......GOT IT! he shouts loudly ....and smiles a smile that makes him similar to the devil himself.....his going to use his space knowledge.......his a STARGAZER scientiest and his quite a genius......doing some complicated mathematical equations of his own ......he found out a way to fulfill his dream .....but first! he have to build his tower.....a huge tower which will take him high above ...where he could scan and find the specfic stars from which he can get the power to takeover the world!
Secound scene........the desert full of people.......slaves......bought from many places all over the world ,just for a specifc mission .....to build the tower of stone ,thousands and thousands of innocent bodies all over together ,at one specific place at the hot desert ,only to fulfill and build the tower of the pyscho ,evil wizard....with no choice to refuse...cause NO means death.........
Year after year and the tower starts get higher and higher ...still didnt reach the certian height which the WIZARD is eager to get to......but who cares ? its only a matter of time to get up and become the ruler of the world!
The songs begins from the thoughts and mouth of a SLAVE ,who was taken from his home and land ,bought here to work and suffer to build the tower of stone ,it has been many years since he was stolen from his home ......and all that he dream of is get back home one day ...its the oly thing that kept him alive all these passing years ......he grew up and became a man .....he knows that his dream is hard to get ....but who knows what will happen after they get the tower built? may be they will set them free and he could get back home some day ,may be.......anyway his breathing just for this dream.
"High noon, oh I'd sell my soul for water Nine years worth of breakin' my back"
It has been 9 years and the tower of stone is almost over......the slave looks at the tower somekind of proud that he defeated all the diffuculties he faced .....looking at the tower getting higher year after the other ......his so happy that he resisted and didnt give up his dream ,as the tower represents the amount of hard time he had been through.... as the tower gets higher ...he can imagine ,and get how much he suffered through the time he spent there.Even water is hard to get there....as the WIZARD is so anxious and eager to get the tower built as fast as possible ,and he doesnt want the slaves to waste his time drinking water .......who cares if they die ? all what he cares about is his tower getting done...and anyway only the tough men would survive without water .
"There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard See how he glides, why he's lighter than air? Oh I see his face!"
The WIZARD has came to the working arena by himself.....taking a look at the workers and tower as usual ......our SLAVE hero looking for a place with a shadow were he can have a rest only for a couple of mintues.....there he see the huge shadow right close to him .....suddenly he sees the WIZARD........through out all this past years ..he havent saw the WIZARD ever....this was his first time ...the WIZARD looking at the slaves.....suddenly his eyes fell on our hero .....both at a secound had a furious eye contact......
"Where is your star? Is it far, is it far, is it far? When do we leave? I believe, yes, I believe"
The SLAVE shouts within himself with anger ....looking at the WIZARD.....asking him where is his star ! when its going to be over?.....is it still much more than this ? he shouts again within himself ,when its going to be over ? are u going to set us free? anyway ,no matter what happens the SLAVE would fight and resist ....cause simply he belives that one day his going to get back home.....when ? well its only a matter of time .....in specfic....a test of time.
"In the heat and the rain With the whips and chains To see him fly So many die We built a tower of stone With our flesh and bone Just to see him fly But don't know why Now where do we go?"
The SLAVE looking at the tower and going back through his memory ...remebering this past hard years ......remebering the hot ,hard ,dry working days ....and in conflect ...the winter rainy and cold days ......remebering and wondering how he resisted the suffer through out all this years....remebering how many friends he lost during those years ,knowing that this tower is not only built of stone .....but infact built of the swet ,tears and blood of his friends and himself of course.Many people died far away from their homes and family and theydont even know what did they die for? and even if its over.....will they ever get back home someday ?
"Hot wind, moving fast across the desert We feel that our time has arrived The world spins, while we put his dream together A tower of stone to take him straight to the sky Oh I see his face!"
Its the hot,dry summer again .....and although its pretty hard to work in such a weather......the slaves are working hard ....as they felt that the tower was almost over and that they fulfulied the WIZARD dream which took them all those years to built wondering what have changed and happened at their homelands and dreaming of the day that will take them back to the hugs of their families.The SLAVE during the work takes a flash back with his mind ...remebering the WIZARDS face and there went the questions which he have been always asking for ....
" Where is your star? Is it far, is it far, is it far? When do we leave? Hey, I believe, I believe"
and once again he remebers all this hard years .....
"In the heat and the rain With the whips and chains Just to see him fly Too many die We built a tower of stone With our flesh and bone To see him fly But we don't know why Ooh, now where do we go"
Couple of months later......its over ....they did it ......the tower have been compeleted ........and all what is left now is to wait and see the WIZARD on its top .......they heared some rumours say that the WIZARD called their tower THE PYRAMIDS..but still its not certain ......The day has come and the WIZARD loudly announces that he is going to the top of the world ......and that all of his kingdom should come and see this great celebration of this long awaited tower....which of course he would use to overtake the world using the hidden powers of the stars to energize his superevil powers he already has.
"All eyes see the figure of the wizard As he climbs to the top of the world No sound, as he falls instead of rising Time standing still, then there's blood on the sand Oh I see his face!"
All the kingdom watching the WIZARD has he climbs the tower high above the ground ....eyes of hatred all over the place ...from the eyes of people which have suffered alotto get this tower built......finally the WIZARD makes it to the top ......cant belive himself....the WIZARD stood at the edge of the tower...looking downward on to his people and slaves laughing laughing in halusination ..he cant belive that he fulfilled his dream and that by the night his going to be the ruler of the world.Suddenly the WIZARD slips over the edge of the tower!!! the WIZARD falls on the down .....his blood spreaded all over the golden desert .......no sound ,no voice ,no whispher.....nothin!!! thousand people just staring at who used to be their ruler.......they cant belive what happened....the slaves cant belive that all these years to fulifill the WIZARDS dream collapsed all hell in secound!! The slave through his tears looking at the WIZARD body starts asking him again.....
"Where was your star? Was it far, was it far When did we leave? We believed, we believed, we believed"
and once again his memory flashes back in a secound .....remebering all the things he his been through ......
" In heat and rain With the whips and chains To see him fly So many died We built a tower of stone With our flesh and bone To see him fly But why In all the rain With all the chains Did so many die Just to see him fly"
The SLAVE moves towards the WIZARD body .....the WIZARD eyes wide open ...with blood slipping off his mouth and all over his face....the SLAVE shouts in his face....
"Look at my flesh and bone Now, look, look, look, look, Look at the tower of stone"
the slave is furious .....he is shouting at the stunning face of the WIZARD asking him to see what he have done to him and to similar slaves ....making them suffer and die ,just for a useless tower of stone......the SLAVE still crying ...not for the death of the WIZARD...but for all the pain and suffer he have been through.....only to build a tower of stone!
"I see a RAINBOW RISING Look there, on the horizon "
Through his tears the SLAVE looks at the horizon .....and watches a RISING RAINBOW......and here we start to take a look at the album title RAINBOW RISING .....which means alot the song......the RISING RAINBOW here is symbol of many things ....the rainbow is a symbol of the innocence,good and purifaction .....whats more the rainbow is a symbol of HOPE.....watching the RAINBOW high rising in the horizon ...reminded the SLAVE of his dream.....it energized him with the hope and will to get back home......the SLAVE screams......
"And I'm coming home, I'm coming home, I'm coming home"
he wont give up ....his nightmare is over and has to fight to get back home .....nothin is going to stand in his face...even time ....he dont care anymore.....
" Time is standing still You, give back my will Ooh ooh ooh ooh Going home I'm going home" "My eyes are bleeding And my heart is lead ahead But it's not home But it's not home Ooh"
The SLAVE is tearing blood he feels that nothin can stand in his way to get back home....but he still knows that his home is still far away .....and although his heart is lying there at his home.....he knows that he might not make it .......but anyway he doesnt want to die here ....cause he belives that this is aint his home and it will never be....he prefers to die trying to fulifill his dream ...
"Going home I'm going home My eyes are bleeding And my heart is lead ahead But it's not home But it's not home"
SLAVE trys to encourage himself once again that his going back home...but still cant belive that he might not make it....... looking back at the WIZARD .....the SLAVE starts to shout into the WIZARDS face ....shouting furiously ....
"Take me back, take me back Back to my home ooh, ooh, ooh"
the song ends tragically....leaving the big question behind.........did he make it ? did he get back home ? will he ever fulfill his dream ? or did he surrender to his destiny after all he have been through ?..... Taking a look through the artwork of the album...we can clearly see how its related to the song and the album title RAINBOW RISING......we can see a RAINBOW RISING through the stone,water and darkness.....while there is a HUGE hand which is trying to grab it down ....while some one with standing and watching what is going to happen .....the RAINBOW is simply symbols to the SLAVE innocence,love and live time dream of getting back home .......while the evil hands ,simple symbols to evil and the WIZARD whos standing in the face of the slave dream of getting back home and whos trying to keep evil ruling over the world. Not only the lyrics and image that makes this song one of the ROCK all time classics....but simply the music as well......from the first super drum intro by the drums legend COZY POWELL ,to the EASTERN sound type performed by RICTHIE BLACKMORE .....giving u the feelings of the east and desert in the song.....backgrounded by great keyboard work by TONY CAREY ....which is higly shown at the chours in specfic......Of course BLACKMOREs solo at the very mid of the song....captures the greatest moments of this song .....with its magical ,heavy and eastern effects played by BLACKMORE ,jus proving why his the toppest melodic guitarist of all time......cant forget the addition of the orchestra and JIMMY BAIn bass performance ..which add alot to such a classic.....Finally comes the voice and the thoughts of the SLAVE which is represented by the worlds greatest vocal RONNIE JAMES DIO ....ronnies performance on this song is far beyound any classic limits with his high melodic ,feelings vo! ice specially at the very end of the song.....screaming to take him back home .....u get the SLAVE suffer through RONNIES voice through a performance which i personally think.....would never be repeated or imitated again .......ever!!
